Micah: I remember. The dogs weren't trying to fight but they wouldn't back off. You and Merci were trying to hide behind Jan and Marcus was being protective and trying to run them off, so it could have had a disastrous ending.
Buddy: Yes, unleashed and leashed dogs do not mix!
Micah: Come to think of it, we posted a couple of pictures of the one dog a while back. (Capital Hockeysticks) Jan kept trying to catch some photos of him in action but all she could catch were a couple of lousy shots.
Buddy: Until now. Jan finally caught some action photos in April. And last week she heard the owner call the dog "Nautilus". This is how Nautilus greets us when he hears or sees us coming - unless he's inside the house at the time.
Micah: Frankie Furter once suggested in a comment we should call the dog "Toaster" since he keeps popping up. I can see why.
Buddy: In this picture between leaps, the bottom of his legs are missing. That's because he's standing on a hill.
Micah: That would make his invisible trampoline act more impressive!
Buddy: It certainly does. We've gotten used to seeing him popping up and down with his tail going twenty miles an hour. (Jan used the camera's zoom to catch these photos.) Marcus doesn't even bark at him any more.
Micah: He looks more like a clown than an aggressive dog.
Buddy: That's what Jan says. She'd love to meet him sometime when we aren't with her.
Micah: Marcus leaps when he's excited, too. We should put the two on a real trampoline and call them the Popup Pitties. We could make a lot of money.
Buddy: Hey, that's not a bad idea. If Mudd can do it, the Popup Pitties should be a hit!
